Splendid Sundays Volume 169Sunday, February 15, 2015
A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
Art museums curate cognitive experiences for Alzheimer's patients. "The tour pace is . . . geared to spark conversation. When eyes light up upon viewing a particular piece of art, docents might ask them to share what they are thinking or what it reminds them of. And sometimes they will relate a memory that they’ve never told anyone." [The Atlanta Journal-Constitution]
All you need to know about personal finance in 833 words. "Smart money moves aren’t more complicated than you think. They’re simpler." [The Wall Street Journal]
The billion-dollar e-commerce company you know nothing about. "When you’re an early-stage startup, and things are working really well, the dumbest thing is to try and get a lot of PR." [Fast Company]
A new radio show is helping a generation of Afghans navigate modern love. "It’s hard to exaggerate just how much [telecom] growth has affected everything in Afghan life, maybe especially dating." [Matter]
